2 weeks

We are now two weeks into E's young life! I had my two week incision check today, and all looks well. My labor with E was a very different experience than labor with A, but it turned out to be very similar too in that both boys were in the posterior position (spine to my spine) and had to come out via c section. I'm really proud for having tried, though, and now the picture of A's birth is a little bit clearer too.

E is a good little eater, and sleeps well at night too. I wish I could bottle his smell! As of right now, he has blue gray eyes, and is long and thin! He loves to be held, which can make getting things done around the house tough.

A has been so very good with E--he loves to play with him, give him hugs and kisses, and if E is in the swing, we can be pretty certain he's also holding one of A's toys. Usually, A calls E "Baby," as in "Here, Baby, play with this," and we keep trying to get him to call E by name. He hasn't, however, been so keen on Mommy. I guess it's understandable, since I was in the hospital for several days and haven't been able to do a lot of our usual routines.

But, things have been great in the S household!! Pictures coming soon!
